Templars’ Primary School
Single Equality Scheme
Our Scheme covers a three year period from January 2013 to January 2016
This Single Equality Scheme for schools in Coventry provides a format for addressing the statutory
duties of the Equality Act 2010. This supersedes and brings together all previous statutory duties in
relation to race, gender and disability and also addresses the duty to promote community cohesion,
thus meeting the school’s statutory duties in these areas.
The scheme also highlights how our school has worked with and listened to the staff, pupils, parents
and carers to inform development of action plans, and the need and commitment required to ensure
the scheme is a success. This is underpinned by a commitment to promoting positive relationships
and understanding between all groups within our school community.
